The Thrill of the Find: Exploring the Bill Jamieson Collection

A unique collector and storyteller, the late Bill Jamieson and his fiancée Jessica Phillips welcomed YPC Patrons into their home several times to view Bill’s vast collection of predominantly tribal art and artifacts.

On behalf of Jessica Phillips, we are pleased to invite YPC Patrons to view a portion of this collection in a salon-style evening where the discussion may cover topics such as: why do people collect, how do they decide what to collect, where do they buy, how do they price objects, why do we need collectors and how do collectors decide what to donate to a museum like the ROM?

This event will have limited capacity. RSVP information will be sent by email. Only those people offered a space on a tour will be contacted.
